    EDIT: A friend of mine who read my thread right after I posted it suggested I should check the option for non Unicode programs. That was it. THANK YOU.


    Hi all,

    I have just re-installed Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1, in English (default language of the installation).
    There are no other languages installed as display languages. My location is set to United States. My region preferences are set to "English (United States)".

    The ONLY thing I can think of that is NOT set to an English speaking place is my time zone, which is set to Argentina.


    Whenever I try to install software, somehow it goes through in Spanish. Some software allows you to choose the language, but some doesn't. It just uses the system default, or checks the language of your OS. I don't know why or how or where it takes the Spanish option from.

    I must say I'm not downloading or using installers in Spanish. Actually, they're the same ones I used before doing this clean install.


    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
